Flavorless gringo Mexican food marketed as authentic. Drinks were so so, and while it is Vegas, it was still high priced

The service was great. However, it is very very Americanized Mexican food.

Food was tasteless. We all had fajitas. No spice, no seasoning, no flavor. The tableside guac and chips was good and the highlight of the meal.

Our server was fantastic.

When checking in the restaurant did not have my reservation. But we did get a table. It was a little embarrassing since we had out of town guest. The food was ok as was the service. The chips and guacamole were the best. Not sure if I would go again.

Based on the previous reviews, I didn't have high expectations for Yolo's, but wanted to have dinner before a concert, so we gave it a try. I was more than pleasantly surprised; the food was really good (shrimp fajitas were full of flavor with house made tortillas and served with ramekins of cheese, sour cream, salsa, and guacamole). Great value, especially for a restaurant on the Strip and good beverage choices. They also offer food until midnight (unlike most of the spots at Planet Hollywood - so good for after concert snacks).

My only complaint is that the temperature was very warm in the restaurant, but I'll definitely be back!

Great food and great service. The bar area sits close to the casino, so that is not ideal if you want a more quiet experience.

Still looking for a place in Vegas that has decent Mexican food. We moved from Colorado and haven't found anything that compares with the Mexican food we were accustomed to there. I had carne tampiquena at Yolos and it tasted like beef cubes with diced tomatoes with a touch of peppers.

On a recent trip to Vegas, we needed a medium-priced restaurant in Planet Hollywood that could accommodate a reservation for 16. I chose Yolo’s for that reason. However, I was very impressed with the quality of food and great service we received! They will no longer be a convenience choice for me, but a yummy choice! I recommend Yolo’s for good Mexican!

Fajitas were fatty and greasy.
Enchiladas were dry, I became ill after eating them.
Overall disappointing and would not go back.

It was fair at best the server was fine but was very distracted by a larger table that he was serving. The food was okay nothing outstanding. We were on our way to a show so gave ourselves an hour and a half we were done in 35 min.

As an appetizer, we ordered to chips and salsa and the street corn. The salsa was mostly tomato based. I thought it would make a great pizza sauce rather than a salsa. The corn had a nice char however it lacked cheese and any kind of mayonnaise sauce which street corn has. I ordered the chicken tamales. They were mediocre. They lacked any kind of flavor. The plating was unusual. The refried beans are mashed to a almost liquid state. The way they were on the plate, it looked like something that came out of a diaper, a grayish brown puddle. Very unappealing to look at. The rice was luke warm and it had hard grains that were probably scraped from the side of the hotel pan. My wife had the vegetable fajita which consisted of 50% shredded carrots and had no flavor. Our server was attentive to the point of being a bother. He kept coming back checking on us and every time he told us, "No hurry, take your time." Funny because we were the only table in that section of the restaurant and it wasn't like people were beating down the doors to get a table. For a restaurant that has been at Planet Hollywood for 11 years, I expected way more. How has this place survived? To give any weight to this review, I am a Corporate Director of Food Operations so I think I know what I am talking about.
